By the way, you're welcome
Isn't that their regular price? I didn't see a sale reference anywhere either.
New Lower price, was $250ish up until a day or two ago.
Hmmm there was NO way I was coughing up $250 for one. This is tempting but I still think I'd rather buy three 12 rounders instead. They do look like fun though...
That's because ProMag just showed off their 12/$103 and 20/$128 round drums at the SHOT Show.....And they both looked nicely made....Time will tell if they work.
But have you ever actually brought a ProMag anything home and found that it worked well?
I'll stick with MDArms b/c at least I know what I am buying.
I'm the test case here for the 12rd drum....On order and waiting for delivery. Mike's 20rder is nice...I have one. But, they are not what I would use tactically. If he had a 12rd drum I would buy his....He doesn't so I'm giving ProMag a shot.
Cameron at Chaos is developing a steel 10 round drum that is supposed to be super compact and feature some sort of fast reloading system. I have some ProMag stick mags that work fine but I bought them only as range toys. The AGPs get my nod for real use. MD is also going to bring out a BSOUBLE STACK stick magazine that will make the single stacks obsolescent if not completely obsolete.
Tactical or not a 20-round drum attached to my 11" Tromix will make short work of damn near anything IMHO. And why not have a couple extra for the hell of it?
You can't bring too much gun I always say.
Sorry for the ignorant questions:
1-- Does the drum make it harder to comfortably reach the fore-end?
2) What will be the advantage of a 10 rd drum verses a 10 round double stack (when the doulbe stack comes out)?
One thing about the drum, if you have a folding stock, some of the stocks won't close completely if the drum is on. And why don't they make versions that shoot 3" shells is beyond me. All the same, I got two on the way.
I know MD Arms was working on a version that works with the new magwells that have come out. I'm betting he is now has that together and is unloading the old version. I can't believe Matt lowered the price on the only proven drum because of a promag drum.
1.....Yes and it's heavy fully loaded....ProMags 12rd drum was very small and would not have those traits.
2.....Smaller vertical profile at best. The flat double stack(I was hoping 12rds) would be easier to carry a bunch in a tactical vest....Best option IMO....And why I mentioned that a 20rd drum is not very tactical.
I'm with yeah on the short work.....it's the long work where they are just too big. And I'm with yeah on the extras....Especially at $120....Be getting mine soon.
Oh...and NICE Tromix reworked Saiga.....Where's the vertical grip? Someone should make one that can swivel diagonally to either side when using the MD20.
I just checked out Saiga12 forum and I was wrong. Matt lowered the price due to the ProMag. Competition is great!
His name is Mike Davidson.
Badass, gonna have to get me one now for sure.
Javelin, how does that Eotech hold up on top of your Saiga? Im lookin into optic options as we speak.
Wrong twice in the same thread. I need to sleep more.
I'm also going to be looking for some glass for my S12, what Eotech do you have on there? Like/dislike? Is that the Chaos quad rail or Halo?? THANKS!
It is the EO 512 that I got last year. No issues as it is a rugged little piece of engineering. Only gripe I might have is that I wish that the battery life of the AA's would be a little better as they need to be replaced every 6 months of or so of use casual range use.
Rails are the old HALO rails I managed to score before he stopped making them. Now I would definitly recommend the Chaos rails that are being sold albiet they are a little pricey.
